Central Community House is a source of support and a community home for the children, families and seniors living in the near east and near south areas of Columbus. Rather than simply address one problem or social condition, they build relationships and work holistically to combat the myriad affects of generational poverty


Join Besa and Central Community House to support our Near East and South Side neighbors!  Besa volunteers will work side by side with Central Community House staff to prepare and cook delicious grab-and-go meals that will be provided to the community. All supplies and ingredients for the meal will be provided. Meals will not be distributed during this volunteer shift. 


Central Community House will provide gloves, hand sanitizer, face mask and we'll also practice social distancing. No community interaction will take place during this volunteer event. If you have your own gloves, face mask and/or hand sanitizer please feel free to bring it/use your own. 


Officials still strongly recommend that people remain at home when possible and limit gathering sizes. Volunteers, however, continue to be needed now more than ever. That means our critical-need projects, as well as those of our partner agencies, are still happening. And healthy and willing volunteers are needed.
